4 chefs. 1 keyboard.

Too Many Chefs is a text-based cooperative cooking game for up to 4 players, featuring local coop, hilarity-filled minigames, bossa nova, and two modes of fun!

Party mode: Team up with friends in local multiplayer to make the best 4-course meal. Just remember-- there's only one keyboard!

Solo mode: Multitask to manage up to 4 stations at once. You'll have to wear a lot of hats!

For best results, play in full-screen mode on the latest version of Chrome or Firefox.
The game is keyboard-only! Click inside the game to focus.

What software did you use to make this?

(Edited 1 time)

This was built from scratch in HTML and Javascript using the React framework :)

It's open-sourced on GitHub and I'd be happy to accept new levels that other people want to create.

Amazing Game! You should add more levels. At my high school we have laptops and this game entertains me and my three friends a tremendous amount. Keep up the good work! I would love to see more games with a party/multiplayer mode from you in the future.

Thanks, and I'm glad you enjoyed it! I don't want to get your hopes up with a new level as I've moved onto other projects, but you can always replay levels and switch roles with your friends (quadruple the content!)
